Substitutet at Storehov Castle

Last Saturday I was lucky to be invited to a party at Sturehov Castle south west of Stockholm. The party was hosted by Substitutet – an artist collective founded by Eskil Loftsson and Adam Peleg who organise parties together and recently opened the doors to the old stable of Sturehof Castle which they have transformed into an art gallery. A year ago the new lady of the castle, Maria Sandberg, got intrigued by the ambitions of her new neighbors and…

Cooling Cucumber Cocktails

I have always loved cucumber as a component in cocktails due to the rich and fresh flavour of it. My favourite gin & tonic is a Hendricks GT with cucumber and black pepper and one of my best cocktails to sip on a hot summers day is the Eastern Standard which is a super fresh and delicious drink with cucumber in it. Imbibe just posted a list wit 10 cucumber cocktails and I thought I’d share their article with you….

Solera Siesta

Wowowow, last night me and two friends went to a Bach piano concerto in Stockholm Cathedral before heading out to a Stockholm summer night bar-hop session. After the concert we went for a couple of beers at Stampen and then had amazing cocktails made by Kaitlin at the little wine bar Gaston on Märlartorget 15. Corner Club, Gaston’s sister bar over the Flying Elk, is shut for holiday but luckily one can enjoy four summer cocktails from their list at…

Aromatic Bitters

I just found this website called PUNCH and they write some interesting pieces on various topics connected to bartending and the business. Here’s one on aromatic bitters! “Today, a dozen seems quaint. There are easily over 50 different brands producing hundreds of flavors of bitters, with more brands coming to market every year. Variations on the more common aromatic and orange varieties have spawned a spectrum of flavors covering every riff on citrus, spice and vegetal imaginable. “If you can think…

TB – PISCO DISCO POPTAILS

I’m back from Cult Cosmic festival 2017. I didn’t do the bar there this year, I just danced and had fun.

Cult Cosmic 2017

Last year I did the bar at Cult Cosmic – a festival outside of Stockholm to which many of my friends contribute with work, music, light, decor and fun! This year I’m going as a guest and it’ll be amazing to just enjoy this beautiful festival without any responsibilities. Even though I love working the bar, I’ve had so much on me lately so this opportunity to just dance and enjoy myself couldn’t be more welcomed! It’ll be so much…
